The gods of fashion have spoken: André Leon Talley, the former Vogue editor-at-large more recently recognized for his position on the judging panel of “America’s Next Top Model,” will be receiving his very own reality show on Bravo. Finally! ALT, without a doubt one of the most endearingly excellent personalities in fashion, will be the subject of a series tentatively titled “Fashion Stories” of NYC in which he acts a “mentor” to four enterprising fashion design teams as they “produce the defining collection of their careers” while striving to “create, show, and sell,” with the ultimate goal of building and maintaining a legitimate business in New York City. As NY Mag rightfully pointed out, the premise of the show does sound like an amalgamation of many fashion reality shows we’ve already seen… but man, who cares about that when André’s at the helm? I would happily watch a show in which he sat chair-bound for 30 minutes. For now, let’s just hope some of his industry pals make a cameo — like, say, Grace Coddington? Hey, just a suggestion.

Squee! Rumor has it “Saturday Night Live” has added a female cast member named Kate McKinnon and she is someone we already know and love around these parts! Kate starred in “Vag Magazine,” the kickass webseries that spoofed women who work at a feminist magazine, as the flaky girl Bethanny. Comedic Kate hails from the Upright Citizens Brigade, appeared on LOGO’s “The Big Gay Sketch Show” and has a movie coming out called “Hannah Has A Ho-Phase,” which sounds right up our alley. Deadline Hollywood reports that “SNL” head honcho Lorne Micheals has been auditioning several ladies for the show and Kate will debut next Saturday in the episode hosted by Sofia Vergara. The Mary Sue tells us that Kate is the first out lesbian to ever appear on the show and she’ll be the first openly gay cast member in 27 years. Mazel tov, Kate McKinnon — we’re a fan already.

Great Odin’s raven, the man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn is back! Have you missed his musk? I sure have. Break out the scotchy scotch scotch, tune your jazz flutes, and get ready to be taken to Pleasure Town for the second time — Ron Burgundy (aka Will Ferrell) showed up on “Conan” last night and announced that “Anchorman 2″ is happening. Sweet son of a bee sting, I’m psyched. [Team Coco]
Justin Bieber is about as famous for his hair — that soft, front swooping mop — as he is for his girlish crooning, so I suppose it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the “Baby” singer is branching out into the hair market. Namely wigs, modeled after his own much-coveted look. Now both men <i>and</i> women can rock the Biebs’ cut without having to undergo any snipping. Hey, if Jessica Simpson can make millions of her line of hair pieces and wigs, why can’t Justin Bieber?
Made from real human hair — not that cheap crap used in Justin Bieber Halloween costumes — donated by fans of the singer (head to LocksOfBieberLove.com to find out how to donate your own), the wigs also come with Bieber-approved hair products (mousse and pomade). Priced at $99 each, you can pay an addition $29.99 for custom highlights. So, would you ever buy a wig from Justin Bieber’s line? Get more info after the jump! Keep reading »
In Round One of our Real March Madness, Carrie, the cancer-stricken woman who treated her illness with medically-unproven “urine therapy,” won the “Strange Addiction” matchup, while Courtney Stodden trounced Courtney Love in the battle of the Crazy Courtneys. Now the pair face off in Round Two. If they have anything in common, besides being nutso, I’d say it’s that both are extremely devoted to their crazy choices in life — Carrie stands by her decision to ingest urine through every bodily orifice, while Courtney Stodden married way, way older Doug Hutchison and hasn’t looked back. So who wins this battle? Vote!
Who's The Craziest: Carrie The Pee-Drinker From "My Strange Addiction" Or Teen Bride Courtney Stodden?
- Carrie, the urine therapy enthusiast from "My Strange Addiction"! 'Nuff said. (52%, 441 Votes)
- Crazy is Courtney Stodden's middle name! (48%, 403 Votes)

Well, this might be the strangest, if not the funniest, “Downton Abbey” spoof. Richard Kind and a host of other semi-recognizable actors star in “Downton Arby’s” about a noble family about to lose their Arby’s franchise. Sybil is still flirting with the help (this time, a curly fry guy), Bates and Anna fall in love at the griddle, O’Brien and Thomas are conniving drive-thru tellers, and Edith is still kind of pathetic and overlooked. Just like the real “Downton,” only with more greasy roast beef. Check out the video after the jump! [The FW.com]
